An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings which appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were browsing your website. This sort of a log features raw info on the way the web server has addressed requests in various situations. An error message might appear if, for instance, a link leads to a page or a file that's not on the web server, if the code on a particular page can't be processed, if someone is trying to access the Internet site or its back office via an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule etc. The data in the error log features the IP address of the visitor, what error message showed up and the root cause for the hosting server to display it, the full path to the file which triggered the error and the exact time of the event. Having this info will enable you to learn if any part of your website has an issue, which you may then fix. Therefore, your website visitors will have a better experience and you will optimize the website for maximum performance.
